Moonbeam – creamy golden finish  

Under The Stars – stardust finish multishimmer
Love-in-Idleness (pink finish)

Scheduled for a June launch these individual eye colours are really rather clever. On their own they are the palest of shimmers – each one has a slightly different finish – and they are all things pretty. However, the magic starts when you put them over a very dark colour, such as the Bourjois matte black I have used here or even a black eyeliner, and they transform the black into something quite exciting. 

The only drawback is that they come unpackaged so you really need to invest in the shadow holder (£8.50) to keep them in. The eye shades are £12.50 each, but because they have multi use, I’d really recommend them. You have to like shimmer though and I haven’t captured even a tenth of what they can do on camera – thank you dark thundery clouds above! I also think they’d work amazingly well on navy shadow, darkest green or even deep browns to give an edgy colour selection you probably can’t find elsewhere.
